    Re: According to new pattern is there any restriction for giving Mains exam in Marathi Language?

    UPSC Indian Civil Service Main Examination has 7 conventional type papers and you will get 3 hours of duration for each paper and papers are :

    Paper I - It has two sections - Section I is for Essay - 200 marks and Section II is for English Comprehension and Precis - 100 marks

    Paper II, III, IV and V based on General Studies - 250 marks each

    Paper VI and VII - Optional Subject Paper - 250 marks each

    Candidates will have the option to answer all the question papers, Except Section II of the paper - (English Comprehension and English Precis) in English or Hindi. If the candidate has completed his/her graduation in any of the following language mediums using the particular language medium for qualifying the graduate level examination, then he/she may opt for that particular language medium to answer all the question papers but not for - Paper I - Section II - English Comprehension & Precis

    Assamese, Bengali, Bodo, Dogri, Gujrati, Kannada, Kashmiri, Konkani, Maithili, Malyalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Santhali, Sindhi, Tamil, Telgu and Urdu

    You may see that Marathi is listed under these languages which are available to opt as a medium of examination but you must read above this because that is mandatory for you to read and get carefully

    According to the instructions of the board you will be allowed to select any of the above mentioned language as medium of examination only after getting passed your previous academics in that particular language medium means if you wants to opt Marathi language as the medium of your examination then you must have completed your graduation in Marathi medium then only you will be eligible to choose this medium of main examination

    You must know that a minimum number of 25 candidates should opt for specific language medium for answering the question papers in that language medium. In case there are less than 25 candidates opting for any approved language medium (other than English or Hindi), then those candidates will be required to write their examination either in Hindi or in English only

    You are a Engineering student so I expect that you are pursuing your graduation in English Medium so you will not be allowed to choose Marathi Language as your medium of main examination in civil service exam

    Do not worry about knowledge of any particular language for examination because when you have already completed your study in English Medium then you should not hesitate to face main examination of UPSC ICS in English and I would like to inform you that English is the most necessary language for a civil service aspirants because it is required on higher level process in selection as - Personality Test and if you qualify interview also then your training also will be completed only in English Medium then how will you pass that so think about the future and try to get good command over this subject so you could easily manage everything in the selection process

    All the best
